The Indiana Hoosiers will be without freshman phenom Noah Vonleh, who is out with a foot injury, on Sunday against Ohio State.    

Alex Bozich of Inside the Hall provided the news, via head coach Tom Crean:

Terry Hutchens of Fox Sports adds this detail:

Following Indiana's upset of the Buckeyes, head coach Tom Crean spoke about Vonleh's status (via Dustin Dopirak of the Bloomington Herald-Times):

Vonleh's production won't be easy to replace. The freshman forward has been rock solid for the Hoosiers this season, averaging 11.6 points, 9.1 rebounds, 1.3 blocks and 0.9 steals per game. 

Northwestern coach Chris Collins recently lauded the young man after he helped the Hoosiers narrowly defeat the Wildcats. 

“I’m looking out on the floor and they got a guy who’s going to be a top 10 pick in this year’s draft,” Collins said of Vonleh, via Andy Wittry of the Indiana Daily Student, calling him a “monster.”

Needless to say, Indiana will be hard-pressed to win games without him in the lineup. Hopefully, Vonleh's foot injury isn't serious for the sake of Hoosiers fans everywhere.
